Forums - Gaming Discussion - Is PS4 the 1st Console ever to have the same Top Seller as it's Predecessor?

Tagged games:

By the looks of things, GTAV will be the top selling game on every console, forever.

Amazing stats for an amazing game, it really is brilliant.



We've really only seen games being routinely ported to both gens over the last half decade or so, mainly because the leap in hardware from one gen to the next was comparably small this time around as far as visuals and such are concerned... for most of It certainly seems possible that this is the only time that has happened.

The only instance I can think of where this probably happened was Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 (confirmed top seller) and Pac-Man for the Atari 5200 (probable top seller), but I'm not sure that should count as the latter isn't a port of the 2600 version but was built from the ground up as the 2600 version was notoriously flawed.

sony must love rockstar....

Other way around, the ps2 was huge before gta. The ps2 success gave R* a canvas to paint the future they now have. Where would R* be without Sony is more like it. I would make the same argument for any 3rd party franchise that started on PS1 and PS2

Why love cannot be mutual?

 

 

I am saying this since sony's best seller for their consoles are mostly from rockstar....



 

If there is a GTA6 this gen, then it will be the top seller.

GTA is mostly always the top seller on PS platforms. Guess that goes with PS consoles always being the one with the largest core gamer global penetration coupled with GTA not being on Nintendo platforms.

I thought it wouldn't come to this. I've put the creation of a thread based on that fact on hold for at least a couple of months, but now you ruin it with this.

Well, I have only myself to blame for postponing it for so long.

Sorry for stealing your thunder.  I've actually had posting this in mind for a while now as well.  I finally had a light day and decided to get to it.  Coincidentally, the same thing happened to me.  I've been meaning to create a thread regarding Nintendo Switch games by user play time, and then this happened:

Yep may be the first time...

It is also the first time we have the game of the generation being the same for 2 generations, that being The Last of Us... Sony is full of duplicates =p

By whose metric though?  Sales data is easy to quantify.  But, a "Game of the Generation" tag is very subjective.  I did a quick search though, and I didn't see the re-release of The Last of Us for PS4 on any "Game of the Generation" lists.

You should have missed VGC around 2013-4 when TLOU was declared the GOTG (Game of Two Generations) against Titanfall that was GotG of X1.

If you're counting remasters then we've actually had the same game of the generation for 3 generations, Final Fantasy X of course!

Well, I preffer FF IX, but since it wasn't launched on PS2 and not remastered, then I guess FF X counts as the GoTG (Game of Three Generations).

Are you prepared to argue that The Last of Us's impact on the PS360 generation was greater than the impact left by Call of Duty?

He's not only saying that, but that The Last of Us had the biggest impact on the entire PS4 generation.

Maybe? It seems to be an influence on God of War and Days Gone.

What has impact got to do with anything? Game of generation = best/most fun game of the generation.
